For Canada’s Adventure Couple, Dave and Deb, travel is their full-time gig. As most of us would say, “they’re living the dream.” Which is true, they really are. The couple, who both used to work in the film industry, became inspired by travel during their trip to Thailand back in 2000. From then on, travel defined them more than their careers, and they searched for ways to turn their passion into a lifestyle. Since their first trip to Thailand, they have climbed, paddled, hiked and biked their way through 5 continents doing everything from cycling across Africa, to driving across Mongolia. Not to mention, their adventure travel blog is on top of the charts, and I can truly say the couple inspire me each and every day.

I also believe it is very important to constantly develop your person. So, this is why I have chosen to take on 12 different challenges this year. Each month, I will commit to a new challenge which I will do for 30 days straight. Each week I will post my progress.
